Life is cruel. Life is so unfair. There's war. Children go hungry. And you cannot get a REAL, LIVE UNICORN no matter how much you want one. You just can't. Here's a video of an inconsolable toddler trying to grasp with this grave injustice.
Her mama seems to think she's just tired. NO! She insists, "I just want a real live unicorn, wahahahaaaaaaaa!" My favorite part is when her mom tells her unicorns are really hard to find. For a moment the girl stops crying and asks, "They are?" Like this is news to her. Watch her eyes as all the magic suddenly drains out of her world. But nope! Not going there. She still really, really wants a real live unicorn.
Here's the thing about unicorns, and why we want one. (Admit it! You want one, too!) They will give you anything you want. ANYTHING. You just ask, and they have to give it to you. So having a real, live unicorn is like having everything you could ever want.
But you can't have a unicorn and neither can I. Because magic isn't real. Aw crap. Now I feel like crying, too.
Okay, seriously though? This girl is just tired. Don't tell her I said so because they always deny it, but that's what this is really all about. And if mom had a real, live unicorn, she'd probably be asking the unicorn to make her kid fall asleep right now.
Do your kids still believe in magical creatures?
